Thank you, colleagues, for showing up to support our PIO colleagues at the meeting of the Board of Trustees earlier today. Turnout was very strong, with PIO, AFSCME, and WMU-AAUP members lining the corridors leading to the meeting room and then packing the room.
A number of faculty members representing PIO and the WMU-AAUP addressed the board and made a powerful case for why WMU must stand up to unconstitutional legislative interference. The discourse was respectful but highly compelling and persuasive.
Now it’s time for the President Dunn and the Board of Trustees to do the right thing and ratify the PIO contract!
